Unformatted text preview: Compressing a Reaction Mixture : Compression of a reaction mixture tends to drive the reaction in the direction that Reduces the number of gas molecules (reducing the pressure). Increasing the pressure by introducing an inert gas has no effect on the equilibrium composition. Temperature and Equilibrium: Raising the temperature of an exothermic reaction favors the formation of reactants; raising the temperature of an endothermic reaction favors the formation of products. K RT G o ln 2 1 1 2 1 1 ln T T R H K K o Van’t Hoff Equation Catalysts: Increases the rate of a chemical reaction without being consumed itself. It has no effect on the equilibrium composition of a reaction mixture...
